In 1982 McLaren helped form Cedar Ridge Community Church, an innovative, trans- denominational church in the Baltimore-Washington region. In 1986 he became the church’s full-time pastor and served until 2006. For more than 25 years, McLaren has actively mentored church pastors and has assisted with the development of several new churches. He often speaks nationally and internationally for campus groups, seminaries and clergy, and leadership conferences. McLaren’s lecture topics include the gospel and global crises; theology and postmodernity; liturgy, preaching and spiritual formation; and faith and social justice.

The Joseph J. Naples Conversations in Christ and Culture Lecture and Performance Series fosters conversations about important issues involving the relationship between Christianity and culture.
